This is how these games usually go, Canada leads time of possesion by about 70% but the other nation's goalie plays very well and Canada squeeks a one goal win out.

I'm mostly just giving you a hard time, but come on, Tatar's goal wasn't that bad.

I didn't say it was awful. Believe me, you'd know if I thought so. Here in Canada, you know our favourite IIHF tournament is the WJC. I had a detailed discussion with another poster recently about this countries goalie drought and how we've gotten .807 goaltending in the last 3 games that we've been eliminated in the WJC (two gold medal games, one semifinal). Needless to say, I'm very unhappy with Canada's goaltending situation at all international levels and I will be perhaps harder than I usually would be if we ever even got decent goaltending.

Also, as I said earlier, as a Leafs fan, I have to watch Jonas Gustavsson on a nightly basis. I'm tired of **** goaltending!

Was the hit on Burr dirty? I missed it. **** I hope it's not serious, it was so nice to see him represent his country for the first time. Long overdue.

Nope, incidental contact.

We just have the concussion bug this year.

Slovaks are REALLY dangerous in the offensive zone. Weird to see the Canadians giving them so much space in the middle.

Haha, Schenn. Doesn't block the shot AND screens the goalie. What a beast. Also, Ward sucks.

Schenn - Bowmeester is one of those pairings that make me scratch my head.

This Slovak team is like a HF prospect list of the early 2000's. So many names I had forgotten about.
